"The marginalization of women and the destruction of biodiversity go hand in hand. Loss of diversity is the price paid in the patriarchal model of progress which pushes inexorably towards monoculture, uniformity and homogeneity." Ecofeminism page 166.
“There is no relationship between the prevalence of hunger in a given country and its population. For every densely populated and hungry nation like Bangladesh or Haiti, there is a sparsely populated and hungry nation like Brazil or Indonesia. The world today produces more food per inhabitant than ever before. Enough food is available to provide 4.3 pounds for each person every day: 2.5 pounds of grain, beans and nuts, about a pound of meat, milk and eggs and another of fruit and vegetables. The real causes of hunger are poverty, inequality and lack of access to food and land.” (page 10)
